Sunday, October 14 1759

My wife, self and servant at church in the morning. We had a sermon preached by the Rev Mr Thomas Hurdis, curate of Laughton (Mr Porter administering the communion at Laughton), from the 24th verse of the 118th Psalm: “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

We dined on a piece of beef boiled, an apple pudding, turnips and potatoes. In the afternoon my wife, self and servant went out for church, but, meeting with Mr George Beard of Chailey, I came back with him and stayed at home to accompany him, who stayed with us till about 4:20. Mr Mason and Joseph Fuller Jr drank tea at our house. In the evening and the day read 3 of Tillotson’s sermons.
